Researched Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) but chose SSIS: Has the potential to expand so that you can immediately write code onto the SQL server
Find out what your peers are saying about Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) vs. SSIS and other solutions. Updated: January 2021.
454,950 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"All our systems can be widely integrated by ODI, such as transactional systems, our data warehouses, and B2B integration."
"It's completely user-friendly."
"The most valuable feature that we use is the Knowledge Modules."
"All ETL code is stored in repositories in underlying database schemas. The number of users can access and work on the same solution using a client tool. So distributed teams can work on this tool in an efficient manner."
"The scalability is great. It's one of the reasons we chose the solution."
"The most valuables features are the relatively short learning curve, and the automation capabilities provided through the BIML add-in for SSDT."
"It's already very user-friendly and has a good dashboard."
"There are many good features in this solution including the data fields, database integration, support for SQL views, and the lookups for matching information."
"The most valuable features for our company are the flexibility and the quick turn around time in producing simple ETL solutions."
"I have used most of the standard SQL features, but the ones that stand out are the Data Flows and Bulk Import."
"It is easily scheduled and integrates well with SQL Server and SQL Server Agent jobs."
"Its compatibility with Microsoft products has been very valuable to our company. It fits well within the architecture."
"The simplicity of the solution is great. The solution also offers excellent integration."
"It would be really good if Oracle considered enabling the tool to integrate with some other platforms that are deprecated simply for commercial reasons"
"Overall the product is fine, but sometimes its reports unknown errors while we compile ETL scripts."
"The performance of the user interface is in need of improvement."
"There are certain things where it can be improved. Initial solution setup seems a bit complex at the start, it should be improved because it becomes bit tough for a novice to get started on this. Sometimes error description is not helpful to understand the problem it gives some generic type of errors which are at times not that helpful to understand the underlying root cause of the issue."
"The resource management aspect of the solution could be improved."
"I would like to see more standard components out of the box, such as SFTP, and Data Compression components."
"Sometimes when we want to publish to other types of databases it's not easy to publish to those databases. For example, the Jet Database Engine. Before the SSIS supported Jet Database Engine but nowadays it doesn't support the Jet Database Engine. We connect to many databases such as Access database, SparkPros databases and the other types of databases using Jet Database Engines now and SSIS now doesn't seem to support it in our databases."
"The debugging could be improved because when it came to solving the errors that I've experienced in the past, I've had to look at the documentation for more information."
"I come from a coding background and this tool is graphically based. Sometimes I think it's cumbersome to do mapping graphically. If there was a way to provide a simple script, it would be helpful and make it easier to use."
"This solution needs full support for real-time processing."
"Improving the login procedure would make our reporting easier on monitoring our ETL processes."
"We're in the process of switching to Informatica, and we need to work out data lineage and data profiling and to improve the quality of our data. SSIS, however, is not that compatible with Informatica. We managed to connect it to Informatica Metadata Manager, but we don't get good lineage, so we have to redo all our ETLs using the Informatica process in order to accept the proper data lineage."
"The interface could use improvement, as well as the administrative tools. Jobs fail from time to time for different reasons. It's not a problem with Microsoft, or SSIS itself. The problems are external, but to find the problems and analyze them it takes too much time."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"We found that the cost compared to other integration tools is a little high, but the solution works great."
"This solution has provided an inexpensive tool, and it is easy to find experienced developers."
"My advice is to look at what your configuration will be because most companies have their own deals with Microsoft."
"This solution is included with the MSSQL server package."
"t's incredibly cost effective, easy to learn the basics quickly (although like all ETL tools requires the traditional learning curve to get good at) and has an immense user base."
